Which Is Healthier – a Low-Fat Diet or a Low-Carb Diet?

reasons as to why a low carb diet is better than a low fat diet
6. It manages to improve your glycemic control.
OK, you probably have no idea as to what this means, but for the sake of your health, it’s actually very important. A low-carb diet is perfect for diabetics because of course carbohydrates are turned into glucose; if you reduce the amount of carbs in your diet, your blood-sugar levels will also drop, leading to a reduced need for insulin shots and a vast improvement in overall health. Some doctors have been known to order their patients to follow a low-carb diet for this reason, and the same cannot be said for a low-fat diet.

7. It is harder to fail at this diet.
Perhaps the biggest, and best, reason as to why low-carb diets are better than low-fat diets is because of how much easier they are to follow, and the fact that you are less likely to fail at them. You can eat as big a portion as you like, as long as you follow the rules, and it is easier to avoid carbs in general, as opposed to avoiding fat. Fat is in pretty much everything, so you spend a lot of time counting fat calories, which is boring and laborious. Could you keep that up day after day for weeks? Most people cannot, which is a main reason why those on a low-fat diet tend to fail more often than people on a low-carb diet.

As you can see, there are some very good reasons why a low-carb diet is better than a low-fat diet, but of course it is up to the individual to make the effort and obey the rules, or no diet will ever work. You can only be advised on what to do, but bending the rules will lead to problems that could have so easily been avoided.
